Here's a YouTube highlighting some of Ann Coulter's more stupid moments on television.

And then there's this from last night.

Yeah, that's awesome, Ann. Let's reserve the election of President to the estimated 35 million Mayflower descendants, few if any living west of the Mississippi. Or we could get real and only allow Native Americans to vote. I doubt any of your candidates would be elected by that most "purely Native" stock, Ann.

Let's also remember that anyone born in Alaska or Hawaii is practically guaranteed to have grandparents who were not born "in the United States," since those regions became states in 1959.

Coulter conveniently chooses grandparents as the cut-off because it allows her to vote. Yes, her grandparents are born in the USA, but at least a few of her paternal great-grandparents were peasant-class famine escapees from Ireland. My own experience in dealing with immigrant haters on Twitter is, if you scratch one they nearly always come from that stock. You know, the stinking Irish who are the subject of the "No Irish Need Apply" sentiment of the 19th century. The irony is as thick as their heads.

But more to the point, with this one tweet, Ann Coulter disenfranchises Donald Trump and his entire immediate family.

Trump's MOTHER was born in Scotland.

His FATHER's parents were born in Germany.

Needless to say, all five of his children have a Scottish immigrant grandmother. And Donald's first and third wives aren't native to the US either. So Trump's grandchildren (at least those not born to Marla's daughter Tiffany) don't qualify to vote under Ann Coulter's "rules" either.

Indeed, Trump's mistress and later wife, Marla Maples, has on her mother's side several generations in Tennessee. She may be the most "American" according to Coulter.
